A group of Australian federal and state MPs have convened a cross-party inquiry into the country’s response to the SARS-CoV-2 virus, hearing from experts and victims of the state and federal government’s epidemic measures.

Chaired by Queensland One Nation Sen. Malcolm Roberts, the cross-party inquiry includes Coalition Queensland federal MP George Christensen, New South Wales United Australia Party leader MP Craig Kelly, Queensland One Nation state MP Stephen Andrew, South Australian Coalition Sen. Gerard Rennick, South Australian Coalition Sen. Alex Antic, and more.
Among the speakers at the inquiry on March 23 was Dr. Phillip Altman, an Australian authority on clinical trials and regulatory affairs with decades of experience, who has challenged the prevailing narrative against the use of ivermectin in treating COVID-19, the disease caused by SARS-CoV-2.
In photos obtained by The Epoch Times, Altman is seen presenting slides on what he put forward as a “tsunami of misinformation” that flowed from officials to the public.
This included that lockdowns were useful in stopping the spread of the virus, gene-based COVID-19 vaccines were “safe,” children needed to be injected with gene-based vaccines, paper and cloth protective masks were effective, and that early treatment of COVID-19 was not necessary, among others.
In his presentation, Altman put forward a slide titled “Masterclass in Marketing,” with notes that the pharmaceutical companies that developed the COVID-19 vaccines bore no liability in Australia and that COVID-19 vaccines were given early provisional approval by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (similar to the FDA’s emergency use authorisations in the United States) based on limited data.
